Woodcock v Cumbria Primary Care Trust [2012] EWCA Civ 330; [2012] WLR (D) 97

“For the purposes of a claim for age discrimination under regulation 3 of the Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006, where an employer gave notice of dismissal to an employee on the grounds of redundancy, it was a legitimate part of the aim of the employer in giving that notice to ensure that when giving effect to it, the dismissal also saved the employer additional costs that, had it not timed the dismissal as it did, it was likely to have incurred by reason of the employee’s age.”
